Chattar Manzil (Umbrella Palace)

 

Built by the Nawabs of Lucknow, Chattar Manzil  is one of the famous tourist attractions of Lucknow, situated on the right bank of river Gomti.  The construction of this imposing structure was started by Ghazi-ud-din Haider, the Nawab of Lucknow and after his death it was completed by his son Nasir-ud-din Haider. The palace is famous for its unique architectural style. The dome of the palace is surrounded by a gilt umbrella and so called as Umbrella Palace. It has a marvelous façade with enormous underground rooms. Though the Chattar Manzil retains an old world charm, the influence of modern style of European architecture can also be found in its construction. This amalgamation of old and modern style of architecture enhances the beauty of the building. At present the palace has been remodeled and houses the office of the Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI).
